CME no background


FY23 CME GIF 2The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra’s Crescendo Music Education (CME) programs have been developed to directly impact inner-city school music programs and youth development organizations in the Boston Area. These free, adaptable services represent our commitment to students who lack adequate access to high-quality experiences with music. We believe that by forging pathways for a more robust and vibrant Boston arts education ecosystem, we can create a more just and equitable future for musicians, students, and the communities that support them.

The Crescendo Music Education program also creates The Beginner’s Guide program book as an educational resource for younger listeners that is freely available at every BPO performance.
